Using a Femtocell Canopy Alone to Offer Cellular Service
I am obsessed to put it mildly with the idea of using FemtoCells to offer wireless services to consumers. What are the benefits of this technique? I have tried to list them above. Are there more?
What are the drawbacks? Biggest in my estimation is there is no unlicensed spectrum for LTE as there is for Wi-Fi to take advantage of this approach, and that will take FCC action. Not a windmill I will be tilting.
Also the incumbents have a huge investment in using towers and radio equipment for 2G and 3G. But 4G, especially LTE-Advanced, will require a new set of specifications and a new way of thinking, so perhaps it is time to consider this approach. I believe the benefits will outweigh the detractions while bring a huge bundle of advanced services to our customers. Agree?
What pitfalls do you see?
